My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Ohio
We just purchased a 2010 Ford Expedition EL in Ohio. We had discovered it online, call dealer, looked at car fax, pictures online. We drove to ohio from NH to pick up, as we were picking up new travel trailer in Syracuse on our way back. We got to dealer first thing when they opened, 9 am. kinda overcast cloudy. Salesman was there we took a test drive did a quick walk around. We noticed some buffs/ or scuffs in paint not noticed in the photos (even though i did ask for salesman to just identify any issues big or small so i would know beforehand) Finished sale and went to syracuse. When we got to syracuse it was now sunny and you could notice when the two rear quarter panels were replaced and upon further inspection, poorly. There is no way they couldn't have known about this. A dealership would easily be able to see the work. It also appears they photoshopped the photos online and didn't disclose anything to us before we left. I am aware this could be a risk but these seem like blatant acts of deception.
What rights do we have. We are now in NH, we are taking it to a local Ford dealer to make sure car is safe and to see how much it would cost to fix correctly.
I know that cars get into accidents, and i'm not opposed to owning this truck. But value is affected. We were lied to. I remember asking about truck and he just said it has a clean car fax. And didn't realize it at time, but he was always posturing himself so i didn't really see the worst affected area.
I also understand that car fax isn't 100% accurate. But the dealership i would think would have to tell me of body work. I"m just really frustrated at this point. The truck does seem good mechanically, but i don't think this is going to be cheap to fix
